The coach claimed that the MLA from Pehowa in Kurukshetra kept insisting that they meet. “He messaged me on Instagram and said my national games certificate is pending and wanted to meet in this regard,” she said.

“Unfortunately, my certificate has been misplaced by my federation and I have been taking it up with authorities concerned,” the woman said.

She has said she agreed to meet him at his residence-cum-camp office. When she went there, the minister indulged in sexual misconduct, the woman said.

“He then took me to a side cabin of his residence. He placed my documents on the side table and placed his hand on my foot.

He said when he saw me for the first time, he liked me. He said you keep me happy and I will keep you happy,” the woman alleged.

“I removed his hand…he even tore my T-shirt. I was crying and I raised an alarm for help and though all his staff was there, no one helped me,” she alleged.

Asked about the allegations, Sandeep Singh had on Thursday dubbed them as baseless and called for an independent probe. “I want an independent probe. We will also get it probed because my image has been tarnished,” he had said while denying the charge.

The minister had said all details about the woman’s entire life should be looked into.
